I would help her inside to purchase her tickets herself.

Good answer Sully!

    The fact that the ticket is a "bearer instrument" in only the first step in the verification process.  There could be a video of her giving the person money to buy her tickets. In addition, what does anyone have to lose with having the lottery search for this little old lady? I think it is likely you will get half of it anyway and it would be reasonable for you to say you thought/assumed you would split any win. If she does not show up, you get all of it.

    I also would like to think it was an "angel" testing my honesty. The mark of a good decent person is not what they do in public but what they do in secret when they think no one is looking.

        Yeah but seeing as it was you who actually purchased the tickets and if there was a video of her giving you money there is no way at all that it could be linked to the ticket...it's not about having the lottery search for the lady, but why would they when they have video of you purchasing the ticket and then you present the ticket...the little old lady sad to say would be irrelevant

          No, it would not be irrelevant. If someone gave you $ to purchase a ticket, you have a legal and ethical obligation to tell the lottery officials. it is no different than all the other related but similar fact patterns and litigation where people argue over whether money loaned for a ticket meant something else, i.e. a promise to share. The only difference is the women disappeared and there is a legal obligation to disclose and for the lottery offiicals to look for her. The state has a legal obligation to find the rightful owners of all monies.

            NO you don't...lol  there maybe an ethical obligation to the woman but not too lottery officials officials also how would she prove that the money she gave you wasn't already yours and she was returning it to you or if she gave you money to buy milk and you bought lottery tickets instead how would she prove that that wasn't the case that's what makes her irrelevant

              stops you as you're walking into the supermarket and politely asks you if you would purchase her five Mega Millions tickets,aand she hand you a $5 bill

              feeling like a Good Samaritan you agree.

              when you return back outside the lady is gone' you look around some but she is nowhere to be found

              that evening one of the five tickets turns out to be a jackpot winner.

              my question is do you search for vera to share? Or say fuk that blind old lady this is my money?

              How can you find here? You probably can't.

              If you find her then share some of the money with her.

              Otherwise there is always family, church and the homeless.

              Don't worry too much about her, there are plenty of needy street people out there.

              If you don't care any for needy street people, why should you care any for the lady who gave or sold to you the winning ticket?

                It is the lottery's job to look for her and we have all seen efforts they made to look for people and investigations. I am appalled by people who would rip off a little old lady.

                  I am not sure what law school a certain person attended and perhaps even a basic civics 101 class, (lol lol) but they might want to read prior real life stories on people who have given others money for tickets. Proof can be in the form of testimony, credibility, and other people who might have witnessed the event. None of these facts would be deemed irrelevant by any court or official.

                    Hey don't hate me for it...LOL if you're crazy enough to hand over some money like that and not even wait on your tickets....you must want me to claim it

                    I don't hate you, I don't hate anybody. I just believe in being honest and doing the right thing. Call me old fashioned.

                    She gave you the money and asked you to buy her the tickets and you agreed, but after they win, you're talking about if she can prove she gave you the money?

                    That's the kinda thing that just sticks in my craw.

                    I guess I was raised different.

                    But nowadays you probably hold the majority opinion.

                      Since the love of Money is quoted in scripture as being being a root of evil..l doubt an Angel would be involved in this kind of love act unless they were acting independently of Divine Orders..

                        I'd think Vera must be my guardian angel !

                        I agree Haymaker and that angel is expecting some major good deeds for that $.
